Paris is a great place to visit anytime of the year but there is something special about autumn. As the pulse of the city slows down and the autumn leaves break out, it is a refreshing way to view the city in a different light.

Take a walk in one of Paris's many parks, and check out some of the exhibitions on offer. Go down history lane with a stop at the Catacombs to see the bones of over six million Parisians under the city.
